I am interested to find out what grads are doing from AIE.

The website does not really show current work.

hey hey,

yea, im AIE 2005, and im now at imaginary numbers in sydney working on tactica online. i actually picked up the position before i graduated. other grads are heading off to IRGurus, and are starting there within a week or two.

there are AIE grads at Blue tongue, Pandemic, Torus, IRGurus, Krome, ummm... here..., and thats just the start. MF and Irrational pick up AIE grads when they need them too.

... BUT .... AIE grads can also be found outside of the games industry, doing equally cool jobs at places like and many are at places like Simmersion, Dept of Defence, and some Architect places.

A few have gone onto uni.

... anyway, gotta go, and get back to it. games dont make themselves ya'know.

What's with so many people from defence working in games and vice versa!? I've been noticing this so much lately... Anyone got any theories (besides "its all cool tech stuff")?

Some arts guys with Defence here in Canberra are working on Navy battle simulations and animating models made in CAD created by the engineers. Dep Defence also has a department working on their own in house training games, though I have only seen some fairly basic versions, which was quite a while ago too!

I did the screen course, but I still want to get into games.
At the moment I'm working on a Mod for Battlefield 2, changing the US Army into the Aussie Army, if you're interested at all check out this link:

Job-wise I haven't really started looking yet, as I want to get more content done for this mod so I've got some decent stuff to put in my reel.

I know one of the guys(I won't name names) from the Max night course got a job at Bluetounge, one of my mates rom my class is now at IRGurus, and another of my mates got a job at Catalyst.(that's defence contractor I think)
Aside from them, I'm not sure if anyone else as been sucessfull at getting a job, though I'd put most of it down to lack to motivation on their behalf...

I did the programming course in 2005 and loved it. I got a job working at Firemint ( ) making mobile phone games after working a few weeks on the final project last year. Haven't done snake yet though :D

I graduated from AIE Canberra in 2003, as part of the "Frost" team. With a great reference from Ian Gibson, our headmaster, I was quickly snatched up by IR Gurus Interactive, and have been working there for two years now.

I'm a graduate from AIE 2005, I am employed by IR gurus with 5 other 2005 graduates from AIE (MELB), and around 6 from the previous year of AIE Atari house graduates.

Howdy! I'm a 2005 art grad (dip screen, 3dsmax), and am at IRGurus with a bunch of other grads! AIE kicks butt :)
